A big THANK YOU to my instructor Joel for helping me pass my test!! It was a bit of a long road and Joel has been extremely sensitive and patient with me, especially since I just turned 40 yrs old. Joel always gave good constructive feedback during lessons and his calm and laid-back attitude puts you at ease. Joel’s enthusiasm is second to none, he always believed that I could do it! He is a wonderful person, loves his job and easy to talk to. He is the best instructor and I would definitely recommend Professional Driving School to friends and family in the future……BEST part….. I am able to drive in MANHATTAN with TAXI CABS and I feel confident and SAFE!
Hey all. I passed my motorcycle test yesterday with PDSA :-) Yay!! I'm very happy. All the people involved, from the 4 hour per-certification class to the actual practical road test with Gerry from PDSA yesterday were super professional. Very informative, great guidance, not intimidating in any way, they made me feel very comfortable and at ease particularly at the test site in Yonkers. Those of you wanting to get your full M class license, (Motorcycle, Vespa, Scooter etc) practice your left and right circles and figure of eight maneuvers and you'll have it! Many thanks to all at PDSA for the great ride. Now..I'm going out on my motorcycle. Anthony. 5 Stars *****
If you select this driving school, choose JOEL TRINIDAD as an instructor. He is simply the best!! Gentle, clear and he has the best advice to succeed with the driving test.

Remind your teens about the importance of safe driving habits and the dangers of distracted driving and underage drinking.

There were 1,972 teen drivers of passenger vehicles involved in fatal motor vehicle traffic crashes in 2015. An estimated 99,000 teen passenger vehicle drivers were injured in motor vehicle traffic crashes.”

DMV and The Governor's Traffic Safety Committe Offer Tips For Travelers To Stay Safe This Summer

Enjoy summer and drive safely!


US National Weather Service Boise Idaho

Turn around, don't drown.

Flooding is one of the leading causes of weather related fatalities in the U.S. On average, flooding claims nearly 90 lives each year. More than half of these deaths occur in motor vehicles when people attempt to drive through flooded roadways. This happens because people underestimate the force and power of water, especially when it is moving.

Just six inches of fast-moving water can knock over and carry off an adult. Twelve inches of water can float a small car. If that water is moving, it can carry that car away. Eighteen to twenty-four inches of flowing water can carry away most vehicles, including large SUVs. It is impossible to tell the exact depth of water covering a roadway or the condition of the road below the water. This is especially true at night when your vision is more limited. It is never safe to drive or walk through flood waters. Any time you come to a flooded road, walkway, or path, follow this simple rule: Turn Around Don’t Drown.
